Creative problem solver

Obviously I think my son is a genius. I think that's something most mothers and fathers (and grandparents) think. But yesterday Little Elvis exhibited some very astute problem solving skills, proving that my opinion of his brilliance might be more than opinion.

We were playing on the floor with some of his favorite toys -- a little rubber duck that fits perfectly in his little hand, a set of play keys, an old pacifier and an old remote control. He was happily palming the ducky when I offered him the remote control.

Little Elvis can pass toys back and forth between his hands, and that's what I was trying to get him to do.

My little brainiac stared at the remote in my hand and then looked at the ducky in his hand. He wanted to grab at the remote with both hands, while keeping possession of the ducky.

What's a baby to do? Little Elvis opted to pop the ducky into his mouth for safekeeping while reaching out for the remote with both hands! That's pretty impressive if you ask me.

I just wish I had video of it.
